Proposed move to Tajik Soviet Socialist Republic[edit]

It seems that given that the formal name for this nation was "Tajik Soviet Socialist Republic", the soviet prefix abbreviation (-"SSR") shouldn't be in the full article name. Therefore, I propose to move the article to its full form, Tajik Soviet Socialist Republic. We wouldn't have an article about North Korea titled "DPRK", would we? --Micahbrwn (talk) 09:59, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

We do have articles like Wisconsin, Minnesota, and all the other states of the USA. Tajik SSR was a Republic, with authentic national characteristics, so it deserves a whole article. I do agree, however, that having two different articles for Tajik ASSR and Tajik SSR is illogical, as Tajik ASSR was only a transitional period of the Soviet geo-political division, so I suggest that the article Tajik ASSR be joined with this article in "history" section. --RukhShona (talk) 17:23, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

Tajik/Tadzhik?[edit]

Obviously, "Tajik" is the correct transcription now (and should have been then), but during the Soviet period the usual spelling in Western sources was the transliteration from the Cyrillic, "Tadzhik". Should this article not therefore use the spelling "Tadzhik" with reference to the S.S.R., so as not to be anachronistic? RandomCritic (talk) 01:48, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Tadzhik is a russified transliteration of Tajik, as there is no "j" in Russian --Ibrahim (talk) 18:05, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
